Email News Alerts

In an attempt to keep teens from hanging out on Sixth Street SW near the high school, Perham City Councilors have agreed to designate the block from First to Second Ave. as ‘Resident Only Parking.’


The new parking rule will apply 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Police Chief Jason Hoaby said enforcement of the rule will relax during school events, when that block is needed for public parking.
